You've decided that you want to create an entire display of the wonderful little Department 56 buildings and accessories. The problem is that you aren't quite sure how to put the display together. Obviously, you don't want to set them out on the coffee table because they are sure to be a toddler magnet in that easy to reach spot. However, you don't just want to line them up on a shelf either. How can you best display your little village so you can enjoy its beauty?
Decide if you want to display your Department 56 village year round. If you do decide to keep your village out, you'll want to choose a location that won't be needed after the last of the Christmas decorations are packed away. Once you have the right spot, you'll be able to concentrate on building your village. Just don't forget to switch street lights for spooky Halloween lighting as October approaches. In fact, you can find an entire line of Halloween items, including some eerie buildings.
